Dalhousie University Jr. Representative

Carolanne Caron

Dalhousie University, 2nd Year

Education (Prior to pharmacy school): BSc Biology with Honours

Hobbies & Interests: Reading, hiking, running, playing guitar or piano (poorly), driving and singing loudly (again, quite poorly!), traveling abroad or to visit family across Canada. While doing most of these, I have a coffee in hand and am usually trying to balance 5 things at once. 

Position Goals:

  1. I would like to get our student body at Dalhousie more implicated with CAPSI. This would mean getting the students more implicated with events, as well as having them plan events with help from the council.
  2. I would like to help students find host sites for the IPSF Student Exchange Program to help increase the number of students able to participate in SEPs.
  3. To truly seek out and understand the CAPSI members at Dalhousie’s opinions and help represent them on a more national scale.

Career Goals:

As I am still new to the program, I aim to learn more about the different avenues I can take as a pharmacist. I am currently interested in either pursuing a hospital residency or becoming a member of the Canadian Forces as a Pharmacy Officer. I would also like to become a compounding pharmacist and eventually specialize in veterinary pharmacy.
